Deputy Involved Fight May Flame San Vicente Inn Controversy



West Hollywood Sheriff’s deputies were involved in a fight when responding to the San Vicente Inn tonight, at 845 San Vicente Blvd.

The call for assistance came at about 7:10PM when at least some deputies were on the scene requesting assistance.

A struggle went on for a good amount of time as several additional deputies arrived for backup, at which point the suspect continued to struggle.

We presume this was related to the inn keeping operations on the property, and not the Klean drug treatment center that has (or had) taken over part of the property, which has an entry on Hilldale Avenue.

Klean may have stopped operating for now, however, as the city sent them a cease and desist letter a month or so ago after many residents of the Norma Triangle area made loud protests of their presence.  The Klean website has been taken down other than a basic page with a few lines of business information. Some reports say the facility is continuing to operate as a sober living house rather than treatment center.

The San Vicente Inn, on the other hand, hardly needs an introduction due to its notoriety as a nude resort where sex and drugs have reportedly been rampant over the years.

Whichever side the fight happened on may help fuel the argument for or against use of the property for Klean’s drug treatment or sober living facility.  If related to Klean, it just may be the final nail in the coffin for the facility.  On the other hand, it could serve as an example of why Klean is a better use of the property if on the San Vicente Inn side.

But the third argument that some in the community are making is that the entire property would best serve the community if it were returned to housing stock.  That hardly seems like a realistic and viable economic proposition for the owners of the property unless it were redeveloped into higher density development.

And that itself may be of questionable economic viability, not to mention community controversy in itself.

LA County Workers Cut Down Beach Volleyball Nets Due to Coronavirus



LOS ANGELES (TMZ) — The coronavirus pandemic is giving new meaning to the March tradition of cutting down nets … beaches across Los Angeles County are making sure no one plays volleyball.

L.A. County workers are busy cutting down volleyball nets across the Santa Monica, this only hours after California Governor Gavin Newsom ordered residents to stay home to help slow down the spread of the novel virus.

The decision to take volleyball off the table makes sense when you think about it … everyone in a volleyball match touches the ball, and they’re usually sweating and perspiring, which is not a good combination when it comes to COVID-19.

Despite the “Safer at Home” order for California residents, people can still go outside to walk and get exercise … officials urged folks not to congregate at the beach, and now there’s no way to get a volleyball game going.

We’re used to seeing basketball players cut down the nets during March Madness … but that’s just another annual tradition suspended due to the pandemic.

Tune in to TMZ on TV weekdays Monday through Friday (check syndicated/local listings)
